Hey, has anyone been able to find this follow-up to the Wintertime Blues release? It's from the 2000 Christmas Jam, with sets by the Aquarium Rescue Unit and the ABB (w/ Jimmy/Warren lineup).

It was supposed to be released today, accd'g to the advertisment in Relix, but I can't find it anywhere online, and none of the local brick 'n' mortar stores have any information on it either. The xmasjam.com web-site (referred in the Relix ad) hasn't been updated since before the 2000 Christmas Jam, and Evil Teen Records' web-site doesn't mention it at all.

Anybody know anything about when this one hits stores?

Hey Zambi, I was just going to ask the same question. Couldn't find it anywhere online. It sounded well worth having....any info would be appreciated...

ATO Records doesn't mention Vol. 2, and actually doesn't even mention the first Wintertime Blues in the Mule discography section. I believe the advertisement in Relix states that Vol. 2 is coming out on Evil Teen too. And does anyone ever update the Mule web-site? This is one big fat mystery.

Hey, anyone on e-mule heard anything about this?

Album Cuts: Warren Haynes Presents: The Benefit Vol. 2 Various Artists Evil Teen A-

By Jonathan Stumpf

When Warren Haynes throws a Christmas party, expect nothing but a premium assemblage of musical talent to turn out. For the past 14 years, Haynes has been gathering musicians for an annual event that began at a club in downtown Asheville, N.C.

It has now metamorphosed into an arena-sized symposium for some of the greatest rock and roll musicians to gather at the holidays and spread holiday cheer through music.

Warren Haynes Presents: The Benefit Vol. 2 is a two-disc collection of the musical magic that was captured on December 21, 2000 at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville.

The multitude of musicians captures a range of styles. From the visceral and rousing performance of Gov't Mule, the redneck fusion of Southern boogie delivered by The Bottle Rockets, the acoustic duo of Blues Travelers' John Popper and Kevin Kinney of Drivin' n' Cryin' fame, this album captures the spontaneity of the cross-breeding of genres.

Disc one kicks off with the emotional authenticity of a solo Haynes as he croons "I'll Be The One" and welcomes those in attendance as he begins his parade of soulful musicians.

Though the bulk of the first disc is comprised of gutsy blues rock with the Chris Duarte Band doing an exemplary cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Who Knows" and Haynes' own Gov't Mule tearing apart Tom Waits' "Goin' Out West," the anchor of the first disc is the performance by Aquarium Rescue Unit, their first in five years.

Under the sentry of Col. Bruce Hampton, Aquarium Rescue Unit - comprised of Jimmy Herring, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Sipe - take listeners through the history of a genre-spawning template. With the smacking ascension of "Elevator To The Moon," to the fast-paced, synchronized disharmony of Bob Dylan's "Fixin' To Die," ARU reminds listeners of an era past when experimental jam music could be fun.

And like icing on the cake, the final track of Gov't Mule performing Bobby Sheenan's (late low-end thumper for Blues Traveler) "Mountains Win Again," Haynes wistfully wails on his axe in tandem with John Popper's guttural vocals and incisive harmonica.

The second disc is a riveting journey with some of the most prolific songwriters today.

"Alone" is a vibrant 11-minute expose with the dominant duo of Haynes and Popper. With the slick staccato of Haynes' slide guitar mastery, the listener is treated to a daring and heartfelt response from a rare Popper guitar solo.

"I Shall Be Released" is a humanistic display of musical genius. As Haynes, Popper, Kevin Kinney and Edwin McCain collaborate on this Joan Baez tune, this quartet-potent collection shines like a diamond in the rough. But when Haynes is joined by southern blues godfather Gregg Allman for a solid "Come and Go Blues," the acoustic climax of paramount poignancy is reached.

Wrapping up the second disc in true southern fashion is the Allman Brothers Band. Belting out such tunes as the conscious classic "Ain't Wastin' Time No More," to the soaring "Soulshine," the genre founders of all great music from south of the Mason-Dixon line cap the album with grace and style.

-Jonathan Stumpf

Thanks for posting mtn2climb. Great review, although Fixin' to Die is an old Bukka White blues tune that ARU bluegrass-ed. Can't wait to hear the discs....now just gotta find out where to find it!!

Apparently it was pushed back. And just for the record, I believe the it's being released on evil teen records, which would explain why it isn't on the ATO website. That could also be the reason for it being pushed back. . .

Your right there Zambi."Fixin' to Die Blues" is the actual name of the song and was done during the 1940 Chicago Sessions by Bukka and Washboard Sam. It was covered by Bob Dylan in 1962 on his debut album.

Pam - Bruce did a more countrified blues version with Tinsley Ellis and/or Paul Barrere on Bruce's solo 1986 (some say '87) album Arkansas....a killer record that was re-issued by Terminus Records, btw. Anyway, then ARU made it a nice bluegrass tune. Pretty neat. Jimmy has always killed that one, so I'm really interested to hear the version on Benefit Vol. 2.

A little more about the song "fixin' to die", Robert Plant covered it too but changed the title to "Funny in my Mind" and that version was on the VH1 Storytellers and I think on one of his solo albums but I forget...

Old Bukka White... your right Pam, he did recored it with Washboard Sam , Friday, March 8th 1940, In Chicago, on Vocation records....
the story goes ,, that he had witnessed a friend lapse into a coma and die, and 'got to wondering how a man feels when he dies...'
and in 1967 ,,Buffy Sainte-Marie sang it with Andy Williams on his TV show ...wow!!!! love to get a version of that,,,,
I've been playing the song for years,,, and its Licensed and registered in my name on the Harry Fox/Song File agency....and ASCAP......
and I know, Our Dear Lana has a few Bukka White stories from her college days
take care all..... Peace....

I contacted Evil Teen, Here's the word.

I wrote "how do I get it" reply:

You will have to wait 'til it comes out.
I'm hoping for July but Evil Teen might be going through some major changes
which will allow for wider distribution but might push the release ahead
yet again.

I can't thank you enough for your interest and patience.

P.S. : the relix ad was not supposed to list the original May 6th
release date.
It was a typo. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks johnwott --- I guess waiting 2 months is better than not getting it at all. Appreciate you checking into that and posting here.

Good review of Disc 1. Says it's already been released, but my guess is the author was going by the originally anticipated release date.

Sorry to hear about the delay, but take my word for it, it will be worth the wait. The ARU set is just off the hook, and it's interesting to hear the Jimmy Herring/Warren Haynes version of the Brothers. I also really liked the Chris Duarte songs, he has a Stevie Ray edge in my opinion. Hang in there, folks!

Interesting comment on the Haynes/Herring combo in the Brothers. I couldn't agree more. I could be wrong, but the only show I know of that had those two as the only guitarists was the One For Woody show, which is fantastic. The Dreams from that night is great, although Rich Robinson did join in for that one.

Some like to point out the 7/31/93 show from Stowe, VT. Jimmy and Popper subbed for Dickey while Dickey was in the slammer, or drying out or whatever. To me, it wasn't the same as One for Woody or the 2000 Christmas Jam b/c Jimmy didn't know all the songs that well. The guitar lines weren't harmonized or anything. Jimmy just sat out there and took a solo in each song. But still kinda cool....worth hunting down to hear it (despite Popper's sitting in 2/3 of the show). Funniest thing was Warren first introduced Jimmy as "Jimmy Ferring" at that show....it was the first time they had played together.

I can't wait to hear a professional recording of the Warren/Jimmy ABB. When, oh when is this going to be released??!!

Herring's solo in the 7/31/93 Liz Reed was very good under the circumstance. That's a good show to track down...Seems like Warren called him Jimmy Ferring a couple times...heh...
